Product Review: Solid Gold Beef Recipe Holistic Dog Food

Hello Good Peeps and Pups of Blogville! Macy Blue here! Momma's good shoulder has been acting up so here we are with our Chewy review on the last day of the month again...sigh.

This month I was asked to review Solid Gold Barking at the Moon Beef Recipe Holistic Dog Food. That was a mouthful!!  O.K. Momma.... I'm waiting.  Oh dear... we need a can opener???! Hurry Momma, HURRY!  Ah that's better!  Just l@@k at that deliciousness!!!

That's enough lookin! Let me taste it! LET ME TASTE!! Outside??? ARGH! Pawrents! O.K. Mom...I'm WAITING...

Here it comes!!!! 


OMD! That's good stuff!! WAIT Momma!!! I'm still licking the fork!

That was deeeelish! I think I need another taste Momma!

Oh gosh! That's soooo good!!! Oh Momma! Did you have to post the drooooool photo???

I know Momma always has her own opinions and she likes you all to know the gredients so here's Mom:

Macy loved this but I found the ingredients kinda long compared to our usual variety:
 Beef, Beef Broth, Dicalcium Phosphate, Cassia Gum, Carrageenan, Guar Gum, Dried Egg Product, Tricalcium Phosphate, Flaxseed, Potassium Chloride, Salt, Cranberries, Blueberries, Choline Chloride, Zinc Proteinate, Iron Proteinate, Vitamin E Supplement, Copper Proteinate, Manganese Proteinate, Sodium Selenite, Thiamine Mononitrate, Cobalt Proteinate, Niacin Supplement, d-Calcium Pantothenate, Vitamin A Supplement, Riboflavin Supplement, Biotin, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Potassium Iodide, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Folic Acid.
It is grain and gluten free, if you or your dog have sensitivities. And it's meant to be a stand alone full meal. I typically use canned food to boost the protein in kibble and wet it down...make a good gravy for the kibble.

My issues were the need for a can opener and the long ingredient list. It's been so long since I needed one, it took me a while to find one! LOL!  Some of the ingredients in this food are on the controversial list for dogs. Our current can food has only four ingredients. 

Solid Gold is priced $33.36 / 12 at this writing. Our regular brand is $18.70 / 12... so I see little reason to make the switch.

Back to Macy Blue

Yep...I think it's good stuff! Too bad Mom is so darn picky!

I loved it!

I'm giving Solid Gold Barking at the Moon Beef Recipe Holistic Dog Food four paws up and one dirty stare up at Momma for taking my can away! GRRR!

Momma gives it one thumb up and one down for ingredients, price and hard to open can. She did like that I enjoyed it so much...  Picky picky picky!

Neither Creekhiker nor Macy Blue were compensated for this review. Mr Chewy sent one case of Solid Gold Barking at the Moon Beef Recipe Holistic Dog Food for Macy Blue to devour... or not.

We had the same food in another flavor and did our review today too:) We absolutely LOVE this food. Mom says she thinks it was on sale last week and wishes she had ordered some with our kibble order. It is so creamy and smooth and tastes wonderful!!!

Thanks for the review.

Can't make mom's happy sometimes can you! Thanks for your honest review.

What is it with "good" shoulders right now? You, me, and my friend all are having problems with our "good" shoulders. Argh!

Thanks for the honest review. I agree about the length of the ingredient list... even though Macy loved it.
